Below is my study strategy for the CISSP. Do you think it should be good enough to pass the exam?

Phase 1 - Learning

(This videos are made by the same author that wrote the official study gudie, and its updated for the 2018 CISSP material)

2. Read CISSP Official Study Guide for - Domain One
3. Do Practice Exam (Sybex Text book, Sybex Official Practice Test & Boson Practice Test for Domain One. Continue doing practice exam till 80% for that domain before moving to the next domain
4. Repeat step 1 to 3 for all Remaining domain


Phase 2 - Review
5. Start Doing Practice Test (as an whole, and per domain till above 80% or higher). Do All 3 Practice Test (Sybex Text Book, Official Practice test, and Boson) - while doing practice exam do step 6 and 7 below

    Excellent plan! I also like to study by domain.

    I might replace the crybary certification video (phase 1) with the linkedin learning CISSP video (made by the same author that wrote the officials study guide). It the videos are free for me, since i have a premium linkedin membership. Not sure if it is free for non premium linkedin members.

    If you have the funding, I would add cccure.education test questions. Helped me tremendously both from the testing standpoint as well as knowledge re-enforcement.

    How is this plan working for you? I have access to the linkedin videos through my company, do you find they are worth it?

    I also have access to the Mike Chapple CISSP videos on LinkedIn (Lynda). The videos give a decent overview, but it's fairly high level. They don't come close to the detail in his Sybex book. I think that Mike did this to try to compliment the content of the book. He also offers some great free resources on his site to accompany the book and videos: https://www.certmike.com/

    figured it wouldn't be super in-depth but sometimes listening to the over all context is good enough to help enforce the learning. thanks

    That's exactly how I feel about them. I've found that I retain more from listening/participating than just by reading. I've also gotten a lot out of the Thor Pedersen (sp?) videos on Udemy. He offers separate courses on each domain.

    You got the name right, have you been through those? Any good?

    I've taken two of his courses. He's very thorough and covers the ojectives really well.


    They always have sales. I recommend choosing one of his courses just to try.

    He has a couple of free CISSP summaries on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=thor+pedersen+cissp
